China Glaze Fall 2010 Vintage Vixen: "Midnight Mission" & Testing a New Base Coat

Hi Everyone!!! Today I have another gorgeous color to share from the China Glaze Fall 2010 Vintage Vixen Collection. Enjoy!!

This is Midnight Mission is a "navy blue frost with silver microglitter". It is packed with the silver microglitter and the final color is really something beautiful to look at. I love it.

The formula is wonderful. Again, I am always weary of frosts but this one went on smoothly without leaving those horrid brush marks that frosts are pretty famous for. I am really impressed.

I am also trying out a new Base Coat that was provided to me by a PR company. It's "green" and "anti-aging" so we'll see how it goes. I plan to use it under all manis for the next month or so before reporting back. I feel I need to take my time with a product like this to insure an accurate review.

Here's what it is supposed to do:


  • Hydrates and strengthens nails using the protein peptide, ProSina.
  • Resists chipping and splitting, while providing a great basecoat for your favorite nail polish.
  • Increases the integrity and cohesion to the nail plate resulting in natural flexibility and increased moisture.
  • ProSina’s anti-oxidant behavior allows it to actively remove harmful free radicals most commonly associated with nail damage.
  • $18.00 on www.dermelect.com

In the meantime if you so desire you can follow @dermelect on Twitter/Facebook for the chance to win a Nail Recovery System (value $70). Why not right?

So what do you think of Midnight Mission? Interested?

I've never heard of an anti-aging base coat. Sounds kinda fishy to me. I hope it works for you! On the other hand, that color is all kinds of pretty!

I agree. I am not sure how the base will play out. Perhaps it is meant to avoid discoloration? I am not sure how'd I'd know if it's working but I will evaluate it on strength I think.

Doesn't this color rock? I love it!

This color is TDF! I fell in love with it instantly. I was really worried when I first heard there were frosts in this collection, but they've really redone the whole frost thing here and I LOVE it. It looks fantastic on you!

I agree Nicole! They really took frosts to a new level here I am so happy!!
